Episode 29: The Easter Sunday Bombings
Nilanthi Samaranayake and Alexander Powell join CNA Talks to discuss the tragic terrorist attacks on Easter Sunday in Sri Lanka. Nilanthi provides necessary cultural context discussing the ethnic and religious makeup of the country, and points out that most Sri Lanka observers did not expect to see an attack targeting Christians. Alexander then compares the attack to ISIS actions in other countries in South East Asia. Finally, they both discuss how Sri Lanka might move forward politically and economically.
